Two weeks! In two weeks I am leaving San Francisco to move back to Baltimore! I clamored to leave that place for YEARS and when I finally got as far away as I could without crossing an ocean I decided to go back! I was NOT a New Yorker and there is practically nothing I miss about living in that city. When I hear it called a visitor's town, I understand. But I really, really love San Francisco. It breaks my heart to leave. Maybe one day I'll go back. I'm very excited to go back to Baltimore, and I cannot wait to have a freakin' crab cake with a side of gravy fries.
AND this summer, I wanna go to Ocean City! Although I currently live 4.2 miles from the Pacific Ocean, it's not a beach in the East Coast sense of the word. Instead of a boardwalk and lots of idiots and children, there's just a highway, homeless people, and a graffiti wall that drunk teenage girls pee on. Oh, and a windmill. I think the nearest beach town is Santa Cruz. There's a boardwalk and some rides, but it's just not the same. People don't 'vacation' there religiously every weekend and everything closes at night. There is no Seacrets!
Here's a piece I've been holding onto for just the right time.
You don't go to the beach or to the shore, you go DOWN THE OCEAN.
